a guy pretending to be mitt romney stood on a stage next to me. what $5 trillion tax cut? i don't know anything about a $5 trillion tax cut. >> we are going to win this. we're taking back the white house. >> the romney family is taking back this campaign. >> or not. >> that was kind of strange. trying to stick words in people's mouths. >> stay in your seats. there's just four weeks until election day. >> the top rate, for instance, would go from 35% to 28%. >> don't pay any attention to that tax cut behind the curtain. >> i'm not sure exactly precisely with what i said but i stand behind it, whatever it was. >> we begin exactly 28 days until the election with both the president and his challenger declaring they will win a race that is anything but settled. today their paths will cross again in ohio, the state that may yet decide this election. amid new signs of urgency from both campaigns. case in point, this afternoon's gallup poll showing the president leading mitt romney 49% to 46% among registered voters. among likely voters it's romney up by two leading the president 49% to 47%. f
his own tax plan, making them stick to what they've been the last six or seven months. >> this is where i think paul ryan will have pressure on him and where i expect paul ryan to perform very well. i mean, i found obama's debate performance totally lacking in specifics. we still don't know what his tax plan is or his deficit plan or his budget plan. but paul ryan has become the personification for the democrats of all that is callous and cold and evil about the romney campaign. so ryan now has i think an opportunity to not only explain his plan more importantly romney's plan, but to explain it in a way that is compassionate and human. and i expect he'll do a very good job of that. >> there's a tricky thing that ryan has to do. and i think you suggested it there, carly. there's clearly a distinction between the ryan plan. actually, there have been multiple ryan plans on multiple fronts. >> that's right. >> and the romney plan. so ryan can't get lured into a debate over the specifics. >> i agree with you. >> here's the problem, mitt romney embraced that budget plan. >>
. >> when talking about sesame street and not taxes, you know, foreign policy or, you know, what to do about the fiscal cliff, what kind of a campaign is that? >> well, this is -- so the gamut here, you mentioned, this is on cable tv nationally in some broadcast tv nationally and not in any swing state. if the obama campaign spent $100,000 on this ad buy, i would be surprised. they certainly don't have any real money behind it. this is meant to be a talker in the media and to send to their base and say see, mitt romney, he's being ridiculous. the danger when you do things like this, this close to an election is to your point, i got lots of republicans sending me the famous barack obama quote from 2008 about john mccain that he can't talk about big things in this election so he's trying to make it about small things. i don't think barack obama is trying to make this election about big bird. this seems a targeted strategy at a small group of people. at the same time it certainly opens them up to the, you know, look, we have serious problems in this country, barack obama has said that many time
taxes. >> those are your words, not mine. >> wow. >> stephanie: wow. [ baby crying ] >> maybeby doesn't like -- oh no. >> god. >> stephanie: that's his job is like official whiner of the cam bane. [ whining ] >> he is asking questions. you are not supposed to do that. >> stephanie: yeah, people like a week ago were saying the polls were wrong, and now that they are tightening it's now -- oh look -- >> perfect. [ applause ] >> stephanie: we sort of fell down on the job in that whole polling conspiracy didn't we? are americans just stupid jim said? and then the headline pops up man dies after live roach-eating contest. [ buzzer ] >> stephanie: the polls tightening in florida -- >> well it is florida -- >> just after one debate -- >> stephanie: i know romney has been running one of the most disastrous campaigns in history -- [♪ "world news tonight" theme ♪] >> stephanie: i'm looking forward to the vice presidential debate. >> yeah. >> stephanie: i think ryan is doing a dudy in his pants. someone has changed his nappy. >> you can't ask me questions. [ baby crying ]
the estate tax, achieve north america energy independence, claiming at the same time that president obama's policies would hurt farmers. the governor talks about his five-point plan to fix the economy, something he says will help everyone from farmers to small businesses. >> i'll make sure our tax policies and our regulatory policies and healthcare, all these things come together to make it easier for small business to grow and thrive. america needs this new direction. we can't go on the path we've been on. we must restore america's strength and i will do it with your help. >> the obama campaign leveling a new attack at governor romney today over his plans to cut spending, specifically cut funding for pbs that would affect big bird. they have a new ad about it on today. >> bernie madoff, gut tons of greed and the evil genius to towered over him. one man has the guts to speak his name. >> big bird, big bird, big bird. >> it's me big bird. >> big yellow, a men as to our economy. mitt romney knows it's not wall street you have to worry about, it's sesame street. >> reporter: the republican n
taxes, those things don't create jobs, they cost jobs. >> so question about the numbers, do you care when the number comes out, 7.8%, did you talk about it with your neighbors? do you care? and many pundits say no, that's not how people vote. when they go to the polls they vote their feelings, you know, they know if their neighbor lost their job and know if gas prices are currently through the roof or know if they put can't put food on the table and gas prices skyrocketing. january 20th of 2009 to today, out in california we're getting word upwards of $6 a gallon for gasoline and gas stations running out and people lined up trying to get gasoline out there. and this is not good news. >> and governor huckabee said that those are the things that obviously mean so much more to voters and whether or not the actual unemployment number fluctuates. >> they're looking at gas prices. when they squeeze that handle on the pump, they know they're paying nearly 4 and 5 bucks a gallon and when they get the paycheck they know it's less than it used to be they know that food prices are up and costs
said it yesterday, i will say it today, i loved him saying i will not cut a tax that will raise the national deficit. now, everybody can obsess on his 87 -- and obsess on what he said during the primaries. but that sent a message to me, jim vandehei. >> of the philosophy. >> that that philosophy, a moderate philosophy, a conservative with a small "c" philosophy, that i'm not going to be a crazy ideologue, i'm not going to slash first and ask questions later. i'm mindful that we live in a global -- on a global stage. where investors are scared to death that the u.s. is going to sink deeper in debt. he's striking, though, he's striking the right tone for me. i know he's striking the right tone now for a lot of americans. i don't think you can overstate the importance of that new tone. >> well, and if he were to win, and i still think it's a big if, he would have a lot of flexibility, i think, to do what you were talking about three or four minutes ago on the show, which is do a global deal that's positions the united states to really sort of take advantage of this global slowdown.
did not tell the truth about his tax plan, that he tried to get away from some of the positions he took in the past. >> i'm' expecting kermit to come out and attack obama today to balance things up. here's what i think is happening. the obama team got a little rattled by this debate so they're trying to find kind of their groove. they're trying to take the race back. on the one hand they want to talk flip-flops. on the other hand, extremism. they have to straighten out and come up with one theme. >> let me ask you about something that mitt romney said yesterday. he was with the des moines register of course in iowa. he was talking about abortion rights. he said this, quote, there's no legislation with regards to abortion that i am familiar with that would be part of my agenda. then several hours later his spokesperson said, governor romney would of course support legislation aimed at providing greater protections for life. what's with the mitt romney position going back and forth on different issues? he's not on the same page with his own campaign? >> hopefully the campaign will ge
